Inter Identify Man Utd’s Chris Smalling As Top Target If Milan Skriniar Sold To Tottenham Italian Media Claims
Chris Smalling is Inter’s number one target to replace Milan Skriniar if he goes on to leave the club according to a report in today’s print edition of Italian daily newspaper Corriere della Sera.
Whilst there is a distance of €30 million between Inter and Tottenham Hotspur’s respective evaluations of Skriniar, the parties seem to be getting closer with Inter said to be willing to reduce their €60 million demands if the transfer is done on a permanent basis right away.
The report goes on to explain that Manchester United’s Smalling, who spent last season on loan at Serie A club Roma, is valued at just €15 million, which is significantly less than Fiorentina’s Nikola Milenkovic, who has been identified as another possible replacement. La Viola value the Serbian at €40 million.
The Milan based news outlet also state that Chelsea and Germany defender Antonio Rudiger is another potential replacement that Inter have in mind.
